Thanks for stopping by! I’m Abigail – a writer, entrepreneur, wife and aficionado of all things food and agriculture.
Telling the stories of the people, processes and places that put food on tables around the world makes my heart come alive.
This website is devoted to helping suburbanites and city-dwellers connect to and participate in those stories to inspire confidence in their food choices.
In other words, this website is a mingling — a coming together — of food and agriculture.
I’m a graduate of Purdue University where I studied agricultural communications, specializing in feature writing, copy-editing and social media management.
Following graduation, I served as the deputy communications director for the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. Marriage and a move led me away from that career path and down another. I currently work as freelance writer and ag communications specialist.
I blog about three times per week, writing on modern agriculture, my kitchen and everything in between.
Some of my favorite posts include:
- Ground Rules for Participation – A piece about the values I bring to the table when talking/writing about food and agriculture.
- 3 Lessons on Food and Agriculture from “Downton Abbey” – A look at one of my favorite shows and how it’s influenced my views.
- 4 Things Farmers Taught Me About Work – An overview of the lessons I’ve learned about work from farmers.
- A Home of Anarchy – A reflection on my belief that the home is among the most powerful institutions in society.
I currently reside in the Cincinnati area with my husband.
